Ex-DEA Agent Jack Merchant is living out his precarious retirement on the docks of Charlestown, Mass., surrounded by the revenge-minded dealers and punks he used to put away. All he's got is his sloop, the Lila, but soon enough he gets a visit from the repo man. Except the repo man's a woman. Her proposition: they've got a week to track down a spoiled rich couple who've disappeared with their yacht. Find it, and Merchant can keep the Lila. The trouble is, they're not the only ones looking... A dark tale with enough kinks and twists to keep you guessing to the last page, The Repo is the electrifying new thriller from Bill Eidson, and the first book in a new series featuring Jack Merchant.

"Bill Eidson is an important voice in crime fiction, with a slant and energy all his own."
